The Star Wars­ prequels have had their fair share of criticism over the years. However, despite this, the prequel trilogy does have its moments. While they may not be as entertaining or thought-provoking as the original films, each of the films contain some great scenes and imagery. In fact, there are probably a ton of things you never noticed in the Star Wars prequels (even if you have your own Star Wars fan theories).

The best parts of films like The Phantom Menace are not the action sequences, but the little hints that subtly suggest the things to come. The often clumsy dialogue in Attack of the Clones contains clues about the future of the characters, and Revenge of the Sith has some of the best hidden foreshadowing in Star Wars, with characters used extremely effectively as symbolism. The truth is, there are myriad amazing moments of foreshadowing in the Star Wars prequels, and they'll make you appreciate those films at least a bit more. Plus, with even more Star Wars sequels and installments coming out, maybe reading up on foreshadowing here can help you catch little hints and Easter eggs throughout new Star Wars films.
